on the northeast. could bring easily up to 2 feet to new york city, long island, all of connecticut, all of rhode island, eastern massachusetts, coastal new hampshire and maine blizzard warnings. millions of people, hours left to prepare, the blizzard of 2013 is starting today. you can see where it's located behind me, off the outer banks of north carolina, the heavy rain shield goes up through the mid-atlantic, all the way into southern jersey. the snow part of the storm has yet to begin. that will happen as we go through the morning hours and especially after noon today into new england. that's really your cut-off time if you're anywhere from federal jersey northward. whatever you have to get done, you'll do it in rain this morning. after about noon, get off the roads. that's when we could get stuck and we want plows to be able to clear everything out. as far as the snow totals go, this is the latest thinking on the storm. we're looking at the possibility of over 2 feet in a huge section of eastern new england. that's the historic part of the storm, from the boston area down to providence. look

political instincts above all. he was new yorker, former new york city mayor ed koch died early this morning of congestive heart failure. he was 88 years old. after serving in congress, mayor koch was elected to three times in city hall from 1978 to 1989. koch never married and had no children, but as his "new york times" obituary put it, he was survived by new york itself. koch liked to ask people, you know, how am i doing? eugene robinson, what's his legacy? >> well, as a practical matter, he improved the city's finances tremendously. but really what he did was personify the city, in my view, at a time when it could use that sort of larger than life figure. and he kind of -- his ebullience and determination and drive i think gave a boost in and of themselves to a city that was in pretty bad shape. >> michelle, this was a man who was not afraid to infuriate liberals. >> yeah. i think he seemed to delight in it. in some ways he was kind of the prototypical neo conservative, somebody who started on the left, who started out very liberal, and then made his political career being tough on crime
